I've turned on the option to upload avatars directly to the OLGa board.

Now you don't have to wrestle with Flickr URLs!

Re: Finished! OLGa Forum Upgrade Sunday 6/25/2017 11:00am

If you're talking about the message from Photobucket, it's a policy change they've made on their side. You have to pay them $399 per year to allow third party hosting. Hundreds of folks from the Legion have been affected by this policy change, and thousands of threads have lost valuable information ...

There's a fancy new feature added to the forum. Thanks to a plugin from Postimage, you can now upload pictures as part of your post! Just below the window where you enter your message, you'll find a a blue P to "Add image to post" https://s14.postimg.org/le2c990rh/Screen_Shot_2017-07-03_at...

Re: Finished! OLGa Forum Upgrade Sunday 6/25/2017 11:00am

I also noticed the colors for the Visiting 501st Members and Cadets weren't working out with our new angry red and black theme. I've gone and tweaked the colors so they should be more distinct and visible. I'm also open to suggestions, so if there's a different color that you'd prefer, let me know a...

Re: Finished! OLGa Forum Upgrade Sunday 6/25/2017 11:00am

A little customization and a few hours later, the forum is looking pretty good, even on mobile! After lots of digging and checking with some other folks, there is no easy plug in for the "Going, Not going, Maybe" option for the event postings. The Rebel Legion has some super custom code to...

Re: OLGa Forum Upgrade Sunday 6/25/2017 11:00am

And our upgrade to PHP 5.6.30 and phpBB 3.1.10 is complete! Yes, the forum doesn't look as pretty as it used to, so there's some customization that needs to be done. The most important thing is we did not lose any of our forum accounts or messages! You may need to re-upload your avatars or signature...

Re: OLGa Forum Upgrade Sunday 6/25/2017 11:00am

The Old Line Garrison forum upgrade has been rolled back. Our server is running an ancient version of PHP 5.2.17 on the backend that the hosting provider will need to upgrade. This may potentially break things for the forum. Once the backend has been upgraded, then we can upgrade the actual forum so...

Re: OLGa Forum Upgrade Sunday 6/25/2017 11:00am

Not yet... I'm still on the fence about Tapatalk. Some folks have expressed concerns about security issues with Tapatalk, and since my name is on the Domain Registry, I would be on the hook if oldlinegarrison.com was used to launch bad things into the Internet. A brief Googling of Tapatalk Security ...

Re: Armor advise for a newbie.

Hi Rob, I did some digging on the whitearmor.net forums, and the only one that's been banned is the old Armor FX helmet. I haven't found anything saying the original AM helmet is not approvable, but plenty of praise for his version 2.0 Also, the Legion Costume Resource Library doesn't say anything a...
